My name is Patricia O Connor. I have a BA in History and Archaeology and a Higher Diploma in English Literature from University College Cork. I have recently graduated from the postgraduate Masters course “Texts and Contexts: Medieval to Renaissance Literature” and am currently pursuing my research in Old English Literature as a PhD candidate within the “Digital Arts and Humanities” course offered by University College Cork.
My research topic is a continuation of my Masters research which focused on reconciling the Old English marginalia within a particular manuscript witness of the Old English Bede; Cambridge, Corpus Christi College 41.
I will be using this blog as a means to actively encourage my interest in Old English and the Digital Humanities and to develop potential research avenues.
